Klopp: I won’t leave Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he will not give any thought to resigning from his position as Liverpool manager for the foreseeable future.

The 55-year-old has been in charge of the Merseyside giants since October 2015, taking charge of 409 matches and securing a legacy alongside the club’s legendary figures.

Klopp has delivered seven pieces of silverware at Anfield, including the 2019-20 Premier League trophy and 2018-19 Champions League crown, but the club is currently enduring one of its poorest campaigns in years.

As a result of back-to-back league defeats to Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion, Liverpool finds itself down in ninth position in the standings, 10 points adrift of the top four.

While there is a Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid on the horizon, Liv­

 erpool is already out of the EFL Cup and face an FA Cup third-round replay with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday evening.

Given the length of time at the club and the level of his achieve­ments, there have been sugges­tions that Klopp may soon decide that now is the right time to end his hugely-successful stint.

However, the German feels differently, responding to reporters at a press conference on Monday that he will remain as Liverpool boss until he is informed other­wise.

As quoted by BBC Sport, Klopp said: “Either the manager’s position changes or a lot of other things change. So, as far as I am concerned unless someone tells me I will not go”.

“So that means maybe there is a point where we have to change other stuff. We will see that, but that is something for the future. Like summer or whatever. Not now.

“I have space and time to think about it. We have to play better football now.”

Since the resumption of action after the World Cup, Liverpool has recorded just two wins from six amatches in all competitions, those victories coming against Aston Villa and Leicester City.

Although Liverpool puts together a four-game unbeaten streak before the break in action, seven match­es have now passed by without a clean sheet. – Reuters
